Labor Day Junk Mecha

Big Blue

Flickr member -infomanic- celebrates his day off with this hulking junk mecha for a contest on Mecha Hub. The contrast of the bulky torso and lanky arms is interesting, as well as the incorporation of various Bionicle parts. The shoulder made out of hinges is noteworthy as well. Also impressive is that it fits a minifigue rather comfortably.

We will be doing a parts draft of the Lego 5982 “Smash ‘n Grab” Space Police set. There will also be a building competition for 18/19th century style plantation / country mansion. The prize is only bragging rights, but if you’re so inclined, feel free to create and bring an entry!
